    This game totally looks old, but that's part of what makes it kind of cool. The mechanics of the game are quite good.... Overall, a solid fighter for the XBOX, but probably not for those who don't have a strong sense of nostalgia.

    For a full priced game, this really doesn't give you much.

    This game has good characters, but I still crave for more! The "secret" characters are radically unbalanced. They will dominate in online play. Online play is just garbage, period. It's way way way way way too laggy for this kind of fast fighting game. New players will be bewildered when they are stuck in a corner and some unforgiving person using Shin Akuma will just be ripping them This game has good characters, but I still crave for more! The "secret" characters are radically unbalanced. They will dominate in online play. Online play is just garbage, period. It's way way way way way too laggy for this kind of fast fighting game. New players will be bewildered when they are stuck in a corner and some unforgiving person using Shin Akuma will just be ripping them apart. The XBox controller sucks for the controls. The d-pad is horribly unsensitive. Audio is ok, some of the voices aren't as good as the previous games like MvC2. Graphics like sprites are all in a "hi-def" filter that makes them look choppy. Whatever happened to the smooth animations and gameplay from Street Fighter 3: Third Strike? I'm probably taking this game back, I'm disappointed. Collapse

  1. Behind the poor soundtrack, outdated visuals and general lack of presentation is a beat-em-up with rock-solid gameplay mechanics and ample multiplayer appeal.
  2. Besides its fine-tuned sense of the absurd, this is an undisciplined mess. [Dec 2004, p.86]
  3. The tried and true gameplay, excellent controls, detailed graphics and online play add up to a great package for gamers. However the difficulty and dated look of some of the graphics and sound effects will have non-SNK fans looking elsewhere for their fighting fix.
